LeQuire Gallery Figurative Artists Exhibit open through Oct. 24

LeQuire Gallery's new figurative artists exhibit, which has received national attention in the latest issue of American Art Collector magazine and a local writeup in the Nashville Scene, opened this past weekend.

Here's more information about the exhibit from LeQuire Gallery:

For thousands of years, in almost every culture, the artist's first impulse toward art making has been to draw images of the human form.

This practice continues today and is thriving. There is a major movement among contemporary artists toward a more narrative, figurative art. These artists reject the current notions of avant-garde in favor of the time-honored arts of painting and sculpture. They seek technical mastery using both traditional and modern materials. They are familiar with the theories and techniques of the past and are enlarging that body of knowledge by creating new, meaningful work. It is our mission to show the work of as many of these artists as possible. We consider the annual exhibits of our New Figurative artists to be among our most important events.

The LeQuire Annual New Figurative Artists exhibit includes new works from stable artists Juliette Aristides, Joshua Bronaugh, Jonathan Matthews and Murat Kaboulov and introduces Maggie Rose and Marti Jones Dixon.

The exhibit will be open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Oct. 24. at the gallery (4304 Charlotte Avenue).
